Too much commissioners is never enough: Buncombe board preview

Today’s regular meeting of the Buncombe County Board of Commissioners promises to be a real humdinger, with a number of contentious items scheduled to fall under the board’s gaze.

Items on the agenda include:

• Adoption of the county’s fiscal year 2008 budget
• Approval of a billing schedule for the county health center

• Consideration of an ordinance “prohibiting sex offenders from entering county parks and recreation areas”

• Discussion of a resolution “requesting the environmental advisory board to draft a policy regarding tree preservation on ridge tops and hillsides”

• An update on the Pack Park project

• and a hearty helping of board appointments.   

Public comment begins at 4 p.m. and the regular meeting starts at 4:30 p.m. As always, the meeting will be held on the second floor of the Buncombe County Courthouse.
